The Come Dine with Me vault has been ransacked to count down the 30 best bits ever. During more than 1000 episodes, hundreds of people have attempted to host the ultimate dinner party and claim the £1000 prize. These vintage clips show the good, the bad and the downright ugly, with wannabe cooks and their menu mishaps ranging from pigs trotters for a main course to sausage trifle for dessert. Bad hosting includes the host who fell asleep, leaving her guests to do the cooking. Celebrity contestants include Lesley Joseph, making a meal out of cooking a lamb roast, and Big Brother's Brian Belo, befuddled in the presence of Page 3 model Sophie Reade.
